5.0 out of 5 stars Really fantastic, 10 May 2009
By 
This review is from: Pentax K20D Body Only (14.6 MP High Performance DSLR with Integrated Shake Reduction) (Electronics)
Same level than Nikon D80, D90, Canon 40D, 50D, but better value for money.
Highly customizable, good handling, weatherproof body, Pentax lenses. Pentax is recovering its old prestige.

The only limit is the slightly slow AutoFocus (Canon has a faster one), so if you take often pictures which require very fast shots, you'd better looking for a Canon/Nikon.

As a first lens, I would avoid the Pentax 18-55 and would get the Sigma 17-70 (quite as good as the Pentax 17-70)

well hardly - the slightly "quicker" auto focus does not negate the K20D's other qualities for the money.
